Transportation Summit 2013

hide

Friday | April 12 | 7:30 am - 12:30 pm | Ballantyne Hotel & Lodge

With the uncertainty of funding for transportation infrastructure at all levels of government, how will we address our future growth? Our hub airline is on the verge of a merger. We have a master plan for expansion of our airport. The road needs in our region far outweigh the revenues collected through the gas tax. And, the half-cent sales tax for transit will fall woefully short of funding our community vision for public transportation.
